Rashad couldn't outbox Tito so I doubt he'll do anything of the sort to Liddell. Rashad has power but he is still a neophyte in terms of technique and that much shows when you see him constantly paw his arm (it's not even a pawing jab) with an open hand to try and gauge the range. If he does that with Liddell, Chuck is going to put his dick in the dirt with a massive overhand right, which in all likelihood is going to be the result anyway since Rashad is a tailor-made opponent for Chuck. Just look at Liddell's resume, beating dudes like Monson, Randleman, Busta, Babalu 2x, Couture 2x, Ortiz 2x, and Horn dot the list and they're all grappling-oriented fighters. Out of this list I would say all but Monson and Horn are better strikers than Evans and none of them were able to outstrike Liddell aside from Couture once upon a time. Yes, Rashad has some KO power but it's no good if you can't connect and anyone that still has to paw their hand to gauge range in a fight isn't likely to outstrike Liddell.
In this case, picking Rashad just isn't bright at all. Chuck has faced bigger and better wrestlers with more well-rounded games, and he's destroyed them all. Unless Chuck has morphed into a Nyquil-addled old man overnight, he's got this one in the bag.
Suizida tried to tell me that Jardine's Techno viking monkey style was too much for Vera's overhyped skills but i was to busy nuthugging to listen to 'the truth'
